The spectral albedo of sea ice and salt crusts on the tropical ocean of Snowball Earth: II. Optical modeling
(Journal of Geophysical Research: Oceans, 2016)
During the Snowball Earth events of the Neoproterozoic, tropical regions of the ocean could have developed a precipitated salt lag deposit left behind by sublimating sea ice. The major salt would have been hydrohalite, NaCl•2H2O. The crystals in such a deposit can be small and highly scattering, resulting in an allwave albedo ...
